Lee has taken to social media to express his sadness over the loss of friend and Lee Ranaldo and the Dust bandmate Tim Lüntzel. I have been unsuccessful in finding an account of what happened, but I thought it would be appropriate to give condolences here.
This is what he wrote on Instagram, early this morning:

I loved playing with you every time we took the stage together, from that first Occupy rally in Foley Square thru to late 2015 in Săo Paulo-the last show for The Dust. I'm so glad you were able t play on almost every track on my new record. You were an inspiration these last years above all. My friend, mi bajo.
